NEW YORK — For retailers, it’s like going back to school after a long holiday break.
And on the eve of New York Fashion Week, which officially begins Thursday, it’s going to be a tough semester ahead as the industry faces a cold hard truth: Designer apparel has been struggling for several seasons, meaning retailers will be scrutinizing runways and showrooms with more intensity than ever — and looking for some major changes to jump-start sales.
